Mardi Gras or as they say it in the South "Maaww-dee Graaaw"

This week the Mardi Gras festivities have ramped up here in Florida and of course, in our neighbouring Alabama. There was a parade Friday and Saturday night and there will be another on Tuesday, Feb 24th 2009 - the actual Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday). Even Rudy and Reggie have gotton in on the action.

Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama began in 1703, over 15 years before New Orleans was founded (1718).

We are planning to attend the parade on Tuesday and I will be sure to include some pictures...stay tuned...
